The Tamarind cooking class is offered by the Tamarind restaurant, located along Nam Khan River in the Old Town of Luang Parabang. They offer a morning and ad afternoon class. The morning one includes a trip to the market and therefore is more a full day, while the afternoon is a half day course.
Meeting point is at the restaurant. From there a songthaew took us to a large market 15 minues away from the Old Town. Our chef showed us around and explained the use of the various fruits, vegetable and spices. At some of the stalls we were able to try some of their food, which was nice way to try some new things. You also have some free time there to wander around for a bit.
